Abstract
Conversely to the common way, geometrical optical in free-space and two dimensions is deduced from black body radiation transfer. This is obtained from the only hypothesis of energy conservation, reciprocity and that the emission of convex bodies is proportional to their perimeter. The analysis of an abstract relay element will lead to deduce the reflection law in an unconventional form and new properties of the elliptical mirror as an ideal radiation transfer device.
